SAP Staying “Open” Across Mobile Application Development Frameworks

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Apr 16, 2012

    On the back of what are largely seen to be successful augmentations and refinements to its HANA platform and wider business analytics and IT transformation product lines, SAP is this month drilling down to some more positive and direct messages in the developer space.

    Addressing its incumbent (and soon to be converted) developer ecosystem this month, the company has formed agreements with Adobe, Appcelerator and Sencha to provide an open mobile application development framework on the company's own eponymously named SAP mobile platform.

    As development environments, frameworks and methodologies in the mobile arena continue to evolve, IDC analysts have said that it is critical for mobile enterprise application platforms like SAP's to support the most popular development environments used by real world programming professionals today.

    With this trinity of collaboration now in place, the company says that developers should view this as an opportunity to build mobile apps based on their particular choice of client architectures (from native, to hybrid web container, to mobile web) on top of the SAP mobile application platform.

    "By joining forces with leading mobile app development vendors like Adobe, Appcelerator, and Sencha, we are making it easier for large communities of developers, in the millions, to innovate on our platform. We believe SAP is the only mobile platform provider delivering on the promise of an open platform architecture that supports innovative third-party development environments and tools, providing flexibility for customers to implement the right mobile app every time," said SAP's Sanjay Poonen.

    "To create innovative mobile apps, every company must leverage the creativity and capabilities of in-house developers and millions of developers in the wider mobile ecosystem," said SAP's Poonen. "With our 'Mobile 2.0' strategy, we are opening up our unified platform to capture all the innovation that is possible in the mobile world," he added.
